Company rewards Security Lancaster students for business solutions
Three MSc in Cyber Security students were rewarded by security company Secarma for their solutions to global security challenges.
Security company Secarma and the tutors delivering the Information System Security Management module set a series of coursework questions based on real world challenges faced by Secarma and its clients, including bring your own device, cloud computing and securing the supply chain.
The three students scoring the highest marks, Andrew Hassell, Kiril Ovcinikov, Jose Javier Orozco Echeverria, were awarded customised Raspberry PI devices, a letter of recommendation from Secarma and an opportunity to present their work back to senior employees of Secarma.
Stuart Coulson, Head of Sales at Secarma, explained, "It's quite clear from the students' presentations they've done today that they have got a very good solid backbone of information. They were able to speak on many different topics."
Competition finalist Jose comments, "This has given me some insight on the business itself, on understanding how IT and security is managed in industry, not only learning from experience but also applying knowledge to practical things."
Dr Daniel Prince, Associate Director for Business Partnerships at Security Lancaster added, "Secarma are a fantastic company to work with, they are really open to collaborating with the university and the academics. They provide us with access to industry that really benefits the student experience and their involvement was crucial."
Stuart concludes, "It's been really interesting to come to the university and find out what they have to offer us as a business and it's probably going to lead to more engagement with the university."
Security Lancaster is an EPSRC-GCHQ Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security. It brings together the Lancaster University's research in cyber security, security futures, investigative expertise, violence and society, and transport and infrastructure protection.
